Upcycled Flower Pot with Paint and The Graphics Fairy

Here’s a personal fact you may or may not know about me.  I kill plants.  Not on purpose of course, but it happens.  It’s not that I don’t love vegetation, I just don’t have a knack for keeping plants alive happy.

I received a cute little plant last spring that I’ve kept on my window sill near my kitchen sink.  Lo and behold, it’s still alive and kicking.  I decided it deserved a beautiful and roomy pot to live in…

I love that this label from The Graphics Fairy is wine themed. Don’t you?

In answer to your question, no, I don’t have the slightest clue what I was thinking here. This vessel was painted this way years ago. I think this was the beginning of a long forgotten project. Luckily I kept it.

This is how it looked after three coats of gesso. I was going to add a coat of satin white acrylic, but I liked the roughness the gesso left, so I skipped the paint.

I printed the label onto white tissue paper (that was taped to a piece of card stock).  After trimming it, I applied a coat of Mod Podge to the pot and smoothed it out.

And there she is, back at home near my kitchen sink.  Long live my plant!
